Losing Your Sense of Self

A fellow blogger forwarded me an article published in April in the New York Times Magazine. The article was beautifully written by Linda Logan and details her 20 year journey living with bipolar. She does an excellent job of detailing the hell that it can be living with a mood disorder and the loss of […]

Bring Change 2 Mind

I was aware that Glenn Close has a sister, and a nephew with mental illness and that Glenn is active in helping to erase the stigma of mental illness. What I did not know is that she is the founder of Bring Change 2 Mind which is a national anti-stigma campaign. (I’m sure many of […]

Depression? Mania? Does it matter?

Last week, when I was strugging with depression, I had to ask myself “Are you really depressed or do you just have the blues?” When I’m having a day that I feel especially good I have to ask myself “Are you really feeling extra good or are you manic?” On the one hand I’d like […]

Hypomania is Back

I’ve been down about the fact that I’m not receiving comments these days. It’s really ridiculous because I abandoned my blog for nearly two years. It took awhile to build up a base of readers at that time, and I shouldn’t consider this to be any different.   My feelings get hurt too easily.  It reminds […]

Where Do I Begin?

Tigger Mania Is Back

After a month or more of being balanced Tigger Mania is back. Last week I experienced a slight jump but today is another story. I couldn’t sleep at all last night because of my mania and today I am completely nuts. For those bloggers who I regularly read daily, don’t expect comments from me today. […]


Most of my life I had sleeping problems. If I was depressed I was too worried to get to sleep. If I was manic I was …well, too manic. I did lots of things throughout the night to pass the time. I would draw, write, etc. Then there were the odd things that I did. […]

Another Big Duh

I’m manic today and as usual I love it. The bad part, however, is Maurice wants to chill on his day off. As a result I want to bounce, bounce, bounce all around the house and he wants to watch the tube. In our tiny apartment that is not a good combination. I always love […]
